I have a form with a required Textfield. The field is marked as required, Validation is set to Library and FF::ff_valuenotempty is selected as script. The Error message field contains the string "Field is required".

If I visit the page with a browser without javascript support, I can submit the form without filling out the text field. The empty record gets saved into the database, and an email is sent to the defined Mail recipient(s) for the form.

Does this really mean that there is no server side validation of required fields in Breezing forms?

I think you are right, there is no server-side validation of the required field.

So far, this has not represented an issue since when people submit forms through sites and get errors if they left a required field empty.
